Langdon Bend

The Langdon Bend mitigation site is located at river miles 529 to 532 on the right descending bank 2 miles east of the town of Nemaha, Nebraska. The site consists of 921 acres of formerly farmed lands purchased from willing sellers. At this site, a 10-foot bottom width pilot channel and backwater area was constructed. The channel is connected to the river at the outlet, but stops before meeting the river at the upstream end. Flow into this area occurs by water from the Missouri River backing up the channel and will allow overland flow at the times when the Missouri River is at high water. This site was completed in 1998 and has been turned over to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC).
